Without a doubt, this is the most solid, sturdy, mount I have ever used. My Bushnell TRS-25 stays on target, and the shell deflector did a great job of protecting it. It literally looks like it belongs on there. This mount makes the SKS platform more usable for different specific needs. I use mine as a utility rifle, so this really helps a lot.
I finally found a quality built mount for my SKS through Bad-Ace Tactical! It took longer to punch the pin out of the original sight, than it did to install this mount. All the parts are there, and it doesn't move at all after being properly installed. I always stayed away from mounts that removed the rear sight due to wanting iron sights as a backup, so this checked all the boxes. Obviously, being it went on a steel gun, I op-ed for the steel mount. I was glad too see they made it with the groove so you can still load stripper clips with the mount, but if you have a bigger red dot, you'll need to keep it forward for them too clear it. I'll definitely be looking for a micro-reflex sight now. Thank you too the people at Bad Ace Tactical!
I have 2 SKSs that I installed the steel mounts on with reflex sights. While sighting in the first one it came loose because I didn't have the leveling screws tight enough. I was able to reset the mount at the range and got sighted in with no problem.
I really like having an optic that isn't mounted on the receiver cover. These mounts seem to be very robust and should hold up well.
Fast shipping, quality product
This thing is great!!!
Not being a “Handy Andy”, I’m sure it took me longer than usual to install the mount but, once I watched the video a second time, everything fell in place and was able to follow up with installation of the red dot. The mount is very secure an both items look great on the rifle!
A tad pricey but then again when you're about the only viable option in the sks scout scope mount market I suppose you deserve to name your price. Works fine and dandy without bubba-ing up the rifle too much. Would recommend to else anyone I know that needs one.
Was easy to install and seems very stable. Have not had a chance to shoot with it on yet but I believe it will be great.
Very solid mount. Seems to hold up pretty well. Not sure if the 1/2-3/4 inch section with the cutout for rounds m that protrudes over the receiver is completely necessary. I did have one spent casing get wedged between the bolt and that little part. Maybe it protects the red dot, maybe not. I can’t quite tell. All in all, seems like a good mount. Thanks!
Great service Thankyou!
This is a solid mount for the sks. Hard to find good aftermarket parts for the sks, this is definitely one.
The venerable SKS is a great utility rifle, but as an older user, I could not focus on the standard iron sight. I had a scope mounted on a replacement receiver cover, but it would shift each time the gun was cleaned and could not maintain alignment. This rail affixed to the receiver allows installation of a Red Dot sight or scope. Now I can see my aim point and where I'm shooting, and the aim point doesn't move each time I clean the gun. Easy, straightforward installation instructions with thread locker made installation simple and quick. This was just what I needed at a very reasonable price. Couldn't be happier.
Easy to install, and seems to hold zero well. I'm very happy with this mount to add modern optics to an old bubba'd rifle.
Can't give a real review because I am deployed overseas and won't get a chance to mount it till October....but I'm sure it'll be fine and if not, I'm sure customer service will support it.
Outstanding scope mount. Complete installation took 30 minutes. Rugged and solid; red dot tactical sight holds zero. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their SKS.
Excellent fit form and function
Works perfect mounted sight and then sighted in the iron on the pic rail. Then mounted a red dot and sighted the dot in works perfect and hold zero.
every one I have shown it to could not believe what they were looking at when it came to using the stripper clips still with the red dot in place . very impressive to them no problems in mounting the base either. very well thought out . hope you sell them by the thousands very good product you have developed. reguards todd e shelton
The rail system installed easily and it works great. If you wanna put an optic on an sks id go with this.
Very good experience ! Product of high quality !! Expedite delivery !!
The written instruction sheet included is the best, however the installation video on YouTube is helpful, (the music is pretty awful). The product quantity seems quite good and solid after installation. I've got to get some rounds down range to fully appreciate it.
Piece of cake to install -solid as a rock -LOVE it !!! Doug
Easy to install with the video. After installation zeroed the iron sight with an adjustment on the front sight to 100yds. Good idea to purchase the SKS front sight adjustment tool on Amazon.
Installed red dot and zeroed at 100yds. Held zero through 30 rounds. Sure helps with getting on target and a vast improvement over the sight picture on the OEM original ramp sight.
I am quite happy with my NDT low profile SKS mount. The installation was a little tricky but mostly due to my inexperience and also depending which slave assembled your gun, there are minor variations (my rear sight did not have a pin). It required me to push down on the rear sight while it was flat, and then a helper hit it with the punch and it came out no problem. Just in case anyone else bends a punch trying to get a "pin" out.
I have not shot it yet, but during dry firing it is very easy to get a clear sight picture and cheek weld. Overall I am a big fan.
Great product & great service and communication .. thanks!
Had a little trouble with a stubborn pin removing the old sight but after that it was easy to install. Very pleased with how it looks!!
Totally solid mount that holds zero without worry.
Sight rail looks & works well.
No shake so realy good precision , and we can use clip , perfect product wich respect the sks !
Fitment and quality was great. Love it so far.

ill buy again
Easy to follow instructions for my sks. Mounted rail and red dot but found scope mounted too far back to use strip clips, so removed and remounted scope. My bad.
Have put about 200 rounds
through rifle and everything tight and secure. Love my red dot for much faster target acquisition.
I have not yet been able to use it but it looks amazing and seems to be solid!
Super easy to install. No problems at all mounting and leveling. The rail worked perfectly with my AT3 Red Dot/laser sight. The opening that allows for using a stripper clip works perfectly. Also, this was a Chinese variant. I,m considering doing the same to my two Russian curios. I couldn't be happier.
Performed well. Lots of adjustability for the red dot. Great addition to the custom build
easy to install, works as advertised, best thing to come out of Canada since Kawhi Leanard
The mount looks good is sturdy and mounted exactly how they said it would.
Video helped install the rail very easily
I leveled it in my gun vise, easy instructions, great product compared to circle 10, no need to modify-at all! works great!
Good solid base,easy to install
I had issues with the wedge fitting in my 1950 tulas. It wouldn't fit into the spring seat correctly. One was loose and the other seemed tight. After a few stripper clips, the rail would unseat itself and flop up and down. As the wedge unseated itself from the leaf spring groove. I wouldn't blame the product entirely as these are surplus non matching parts bin rifles.. But it's not a universal solution as described. Now I'm putting the leafs back in.
Product works great!
Installed easy enough. Solid build. There is a small cut out for stripper clip loading. Rail dose not impede function or field strip. Uesing the rail i found the spanning nut under the mount that goes into the leaf spring retainer cutout to pop out often. The flange on the nut does not get the job done. It you tighten it it also pops out. I ended up welding the nut to an old leaf spring to get it to stay where its supposed too.
Have not had an issue since.
Perfect addition to my sks. Installed in minutes even with my not so skilled hands. Hardest part was getting the rear sight pin out. Rifle is now getting acceptable groups on the bench and im hitting a b27 shiloette every time center mass at 150 yards from the shoulder. Couldn't do that with the stock irons. Love that it retains stripper clip usage. Don't even think about it just buy it.
The Bad Ace SKS red dot mount was real easy to install. The hard part was taking off the existing rear sight. Unfortunately it wasn't like the one in the video, but I was able to get it removed, just took a little persuading :)
Very sturdy. Keeps zero. Highly recommended.
My son Daniel loves shooting the SKS with the new sight mount. We spent some time at the range recently and the red dot I mounted stayed zeroed after several hours of fun. It was easy to install and adjust to get the best sight picture available. Great product!!!
Got the product very fast even though it was from eastern Canada to the NW United States. First off I have a soviet version made in 1952, not sure what factory in the USSR. The rail installs tight and clearances are very small. There is a large tension set screw that counters a clamp plate inserted into the rear leaf spring retaining channel. On my rifle this part of the component slipped out of the channel everytime i attempted to adjust the "level". I found the tang on this part to be too shallow to fully seat and be retained. As an HVAC guy im pretty confident in my solder skills. So what i ended up doing is grinding the tang off the nutt plate and brazing it to the old shortened leaf spring. This has retained well despite the slightly over torqued set screw and plate screw. I used a 505 alloy rod. The steel clamp plate nut and old modified leaf spring are both steel so the bonded very well. 505 is rated to 54,000 psi for steel.
Rock solid mount. Don't need to remove it to clean the rifle. It's a rear sight. You can use stripper clips. Well made. I bought a second one. Enough said.
Nice product easy to install
Fast delivery, installation was not difficult, exactly what I wanted for this Norinco Paratrooper.
It holds well, I think the shell deflector part could be shaved off of it. I'm happy with it. Scope and red dot mounts for sks that actually work are few and far between. This one works real well.
Fit and Finnish Perfect Will be showing all my SKS enthusiasts friends and will be outfitting my other SKS with these mounts. Best in the industry second to none Thanks Bad Ace
Solid and easy to install
This is the only mount to use for the sks platform, all others either tap to receiver and get in the way when cleaning, or go on the hand guard which never hold a zero, have put over 2000 rnds through this system from a helicopter, zero is still spot on??
It was not quite as easy to install as the video showed but the video was helpful. Maybe because there are some slight variations in SKS models depending on where it was manufactured. Mine is an original Russian made in the early 1950s. But it is installed. I have not had the opportunity to test it at the range. The fact that it is designed to be used without making permanent changes to my rifle is a big plus. It is a perfect mount for a small red dot type optic. (As pictured). To try and use anything larger usually involves changing the aesthetics of the original piece of hardware. That was something I really didn't want to do.
I don't even have a sight mounted! The notch in the rail is good enough for now. Wish I had of got the sks front sight adjustment tool at the same time though.
fit, finish, and directions were great. shipping was fast
Norinco sks-d type scouted
extremely solid mount, paired its waith a Sig romeo5 and this old norinco is bang on with 1 inch groups at 100 yards easy, so glad I picked this scout mount up when I found out about it. moose n caribou beware.
